Musk canceled another variant, Model S Plaid+, which would have had a 33% higher driving range than the Model S Plaid and used advanced battery technology, known as 4680 cells. "The Model S Plaid is definitely intended to help reduce the migration of current Tesla owners out of Tesla," said Ed Kim, vice president at consultancy AutoPacific. Musk has called the Model S Plaid "the fastest accelerating car ever."

Mary Barra, the first female CEO of a major automaker, is leading GM into an all-electric future. Considered the best GM CEO in decades, her bet on electric vehicles could secure her legacy. For the 112-year-old automaker, electric vehicles were its destiny, and Barra was spending serious money — $27 billion — to ensure GM led the charge. She rolled up Holden, the unit that had been selling GM vehicles in Australia since 1931. It was also to free up money to support Barra's "zero, zero, zero" plan: zero crashes, zero congestion, zero emissions.

(CNN) Next week, in a milestone moment for electric vehicles, Ford will unveil a fully electric version of the Ford F-150 pickup truck called the F-150 Lightning. In July 2019, the auto maker released a video of an electric F-150 driven by chief engineer Linda Zhang pulling a freight train weighing 1.25 million pounds. "I think the Ford F-150 buyer base is definitely more vast," she said. Buyers who might otherwise be worried about making the step to an electric truck, the trusted Ford F-150 name could soothe their nerves, she said. "The Mach-E, as cool as it is, probably won't touch as many people as a Ford F-150 does," said Caldwell.

Its new Cullinan SUV has helped boost sales. Rolls-Royce just set a record. In the first quarter, the British luxury carmaker sold 1,380 vehicles, the most ever in the brand's 116-year history. Fritsches said every Cullinan Rolls can make at its Goodwood factory in England is spoken for through at least the third quarter. But Bentley's Bentayga and the Rolls-Royce Cullinan have set the highest bar.

But if U.S. officials can quickly rollout a Covid-19 vaccine and stabilize the nation, automotive executives and analysts have reason to hope U.S. vehicle sales will return to some form of normalcy in 2021. Early forecasts for new vehicle sales this year range from about 15.6 million to 16 million vehicles, which would be an increase of between 7.6% and 10.3% compared to 2020. Last year's sales were down 14.8% to 14.5 million vehicles, according to Cox Automotive. Jessica Caldwell, executive director of insights for auto research firm Edmunds, believes the current political climate won't have a lasting impact on auto sales for the year. It was similar leading up to the election," she said, adding January is historically the worst sales month of the year.

Pickup trucks dominate America's 10 best-selling vehicles of 2020
  + stars: | 2021-01-08 | by ( Michael Wayland | ) www.cnbc.com + 0.99   time to read: +1 min
Look no further than the automotive industry's best-selling vehicles of last year as proof of America's love for pickup trucks. Led by trucks from the Detroit automakers, pickups accounted for five of the industry's 10 best-selling vehicles in 2020 despite their increasingly higher prices and the coronavirus pandemic. Ford Motor's F-Series truck retained its decades-long sales dominance, followed by pickups from General Motors and Fiat Chrysler. Particularly the Detroit companies, they have kept business afloat fairly well." The companies are still attempting to resupply inventories following a roughly two-month shutdown of their North American plants last spring due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Sales for 2020 are expected to come in at around 14.5 million, according to industry analysts. That would be down 15 percent from the 2019 total of 17.1 million vehicles — but it is significantly better than the 10 million to 12 million some experts forecast last spring. On the flip side, political turmoil, worsening Covid-19 infection rates and other concerns could yet weaken the economy and the car market, observers cautioned. Other factors helped buoy the U.S. car market, especially during the fourth quarter. If anything, truck sales could have been higher were it not for severe inventory shortages faced by dealers across the country.

Coronavirus crippled U.S. auto sales in 2020 but it could have been far worse

But in 2020, the overwhelming sentiment is "it could have been worse." During the depths of the first peak of Covid-19 in the spring, sales of new vehicles collapsed as auto plants shuttered and many dealers were forced to close showrooms. Power forecast retail sales would decline by as much as 80% in April, leading to likely near-recession sales levels for the year. But retail sales to consumers rebounded far faster than anyone forecast. "A big comeback story of 2020 is without a doubt the recovery of retail vehicle sales, which have nearly returned to pre-pandemic levels," said Jessica Caldwell, Edmunds' executive director of insights.

A car dealer shows a vehicle to customers at a dealership in Jersey City, New Jersey. Angus Mordant | Bloomberg | Getty ImagesThe coronavirus pandemic is ending yet another annual holiday tradition for shoppers in 2020: Black Friday deals on new cars. "In terms of deals, there's not pressure on automakers to clear inventory," Jessica Caldwell, executive director of insights for auto research firm Edmunds, told CNBC. It's a simple case of supply and demand, Caldwell said. That has led to a roughly $800 decline in discounts per vehicle from March, according to Brian Finkelmeyer, Cox senior director of new car solutions.
